Product description

Review

"Shilling's thoughts on love and ageing are so wise and so memorably expressed that they would grace a literary novel... Shilling's mild obsession with control and with the delicate, the exquisite and the theatrically miniature almost makes her into a latter day Jane Austen" (New Statesman)

"I loved this book so much I gulped it down in just two sittings... Jane Shilling is a peerlessly elegant and evocative writer" (Libby Purves Mail on Sunday)

"Shilling is a gorgeous writer and there are chunks of this book that I would happily steal... If this woman wrote a novel I would buy it in a heartbeat... Shilling puts the ageing process under the microscope and, as we read, we squirm" (Jenny Eclair Observer)

"Jane Shilling is an outstandingly good writer...she also has emotional and intellectual courage" (Spectator)

"Wry, quietly fuming and often moving memoir of a midlife cri de couer... exceptionally companionable, occasionally bejewelled and richly sustaining broth of a book" (Sunday Telegraph)

Book Description

A remarkable and poignant memoir about one woman's attempt to understand middle age.
